Topic: RE: 6th Fill yesterday
I want to say thanks to my co-pilot, Charline. Having you along made the trip fly by and it was a great comfort to travel around Moncton with some one who knows the "lay of the land".
I had my 6th fill yesterday and my band now has 7.5cc's. It has been a very slow process - or so it seems. Every time I get a fill I hope that this will be the one that gets me to the elusive sweet spot LOL. I have not felt restriction for any length of time after fills. I do understand that as you lose weight the band gets looser. My weight loss has slowed down drastically over the last 2-3 months - down 1 pound since my last visit. I know, better than a gain :-) So, time to step up to the plate (or away from the plate as the case may be). Yesterday's fill was only 4 weeks after my 5th fill. I know I need to make better food choices and plan what I am going to eat - not wait until mealtime and see what I can find. Cause I can always find something quick and easy and that usually means a poor choice.
Ann - you were such a help to me when I started this journey. Go on that trip and have a great time! Then come home to begin the second half of YOUR journey! Reading your post I wonder if you have lost the majority of your weight on your own with little help from the band? If this is the case just imagine what you could do with restriction. Life does get stressful by times and that makes it hard to focus on you. But... YOU are important, YOU are successful, YOU are a fighter. These things are true or you wouldn't have been able to do what you have done. Love you a bunch and sending LOTS of ((((hugs))))
